P&H (Peacewise & Homestyle) are producers Jody O’Brien & Olly Smith. They met at what they describe as some god-forsaken university in middle England. Armed with an MPC, some oldskool analog effects and a pair of headphones they began their musical journey.
Their initial ‘Beau Selection’ E.P. caught the attention of Gamma Proforma in 2001 and as a result the opening track found it’s way onto the label’s '20/20 - Beyond the Breaks' 12”. Since that they have continued to produce together and as solo artists, also taking on other projects such as remixes for the well received ‘Leeds By Example’ Hip-Hop compilation.
Phil Ashcroft twists time and space through piercing shards. The paint almost tears the canvas there's so much weight and intensity! Combining influences from abstract expressionism, British landscape painting, Japanese woodcuts, and graphic street art, Phil's work integrates varied visual styles to generate a crossover between space, object and environment.
